CSCO view of Resilient Supply chains


January 09, 2013

The fear of a catastrophic event affecting their business can keep any executive awake at night.  The response to these events is completely disruptive to the business and often very costly.  The quality and timeliness of the response can make or break reputations in the market and are often determined simply by facility locations or suppliers’ locations.

Having a “resilient supply chain” in place to mitigate these risks and dampen the effect of these catastrophic events is a top of mind subject for all executives across all industries. 

This report will examine the concept of a resilient supply chain and define what it takes to be considered as one.  We will further evaluate the capabilities that companies now have in place and where there are gaps to be overcome for companies across all levels of maturity.
